I abuse blenders. They do not last long. They run until the motor gives out, and with my insistence on completely liquefying drinks made with foods that are just meant to be foods. I refuse to buy blenders, so they only exist for me as gifts. This is because I hate the idea of buying a blender.
I do not need all thirty seven blend settings. I do not need the lights that pulse along with the blender, nor the lights that pair with my phone and flash along with the music. I do not need the fourteen optional blade attachments. I do not want to memorize eighteen button combinations to unlock hard mode. I do not want to have to turn a key to remove the blend limiter.
What I want is one big button with the word blend on it. I know when it is and is not on. I want a lid that I don't have to put a towel over. Safety features will only get in my way.
This Christmas, I'm making soup for everyone with my blender. Orzo, sausage, chicken, corn, carrots, caramelized onions, garlic, and chicken broth. Season with cayenne, salt, black pepper, sugar, and thyme.
